Well then listen up young lady or I'm sending someone over with some rope to tie you down to the couch and then I'm going to have them sing "that song" to you over and over again.......
No dearest, you do NOT have to do stuff. Honestly Teresa! You are not going to stop until you make me get on a plane and come over there, are you?
Seriously. Boring as it may be, sit there, better yet recline there and don't do a DARNED THING!!!!!
Yep! Definitely follow orders and DO NOTHING! It's really hard, but your innards are healing and they heal better when they are resting!
Have your weekend slaves (aka kidlets) leave some magazines/books, puzzles and other restful things on a table near your chair/sofa. And a pitcher of water and a tumbler. You get the idea. Do not lift anything heavier than a cup of tea or tumbler of water (my mother was told a pencil, but that didn't go over too well, either!).
Think of it as insurance for future good health! :D
